Sunday Stealing

THINGS YOU COULDN'T POSSIBLY KNOW

30. What color is your watch? I have several watches that I wear in rotation. And I'm not wearing one at all right now.

31. What do you think of when you think of Australia?
"Do you come from a land down under, where women glow and men plunder?" The Men at Work song from the 1980s.

32. Ever ridden on a roller coaster?
Yes, but not in years.

33. Birthstone?
Topaz.

34. Do you go in at a fast food place or just hit the drive through?
I don't have a car, so I imagine it would piss people off if I used the drive through.

35. Do you have any friends on facebook that you actually hate?
Hate is a strong word ...

36. Do you have a dog?
No

37. Last person you talked to on the phone?
The receptionist at my doctor's office.

38. Have you met anyone famous?
Bruce Springsteen kissed me. It's a story I believe I've told more than he has.

39. Any plans today?
I plan on going over to the library book sale. I believe I can take my pick of the books that didn't sell.


40.  Where are you right now? My dining room.


41. Biggest annoyance in your life right now? That Saturday is almost over and I didn't get anything done. Very frustrated with myself right now.

42. Last song listened to?
"New York State of Mind" by Billy Joel.

43. Last movie you saw?
I just watched an oldie, Prince of

Players, starring Richard Burton. A 1955 movie about Edwin Booth, the stage actor whose career was overshadowed by the misdeeds of his brother, the infamous John Wilkes Booth. It was disappointing, but Burton was awesome, alternately playing Shakespeare, playing the lover and playing drunk.. And thought provoking -- up until now I never gave much thought to how many innocent victims there are to any crime. It's just the rest of the cast wasn't as good as the star. 

Movie trivia tidbit: Raymond Massey played both a Booth and a Lincoln. In this film, he'sthe assassin's father. Decades earlier, he won an Oscar nomination for playing Abe.




44. Are you allergic to anything?
Bee sting

45. Favorite pair of shoes you wear all the time?
This time of year, I love my Birkenstocks.


46. What time is it? Just after midnight on Sunday morning.

47. Do any of your friends have children?
Yes.

48. Do you eat healthy?
More than I did five years ago.

49. What do you usually do during the day?
Stuff

50. Do you hate anyone right now?
Hate is a strong word ...

  1. Holy crap! The Brooooce story is freakin' awesome! I love, too, that even drunk he was well-behaved and a gentleman. That's not usually how those stories go. And thank you, because it totally knocked the ear-worm of "I come from a land down under..." out of my head.

  2. What a great Bruce Story! I can see that happening back in the day...
    Oh, yes, going through the drive thru on foot would do just that!

  3. Hate really is a strong word. I don't use it very often; I try not to use it at all. Some words should not be in the vernacular.

  4. Ahhhhh ... Men At Work. The 80's music scene was almost as bad as the 80's fashion scene!

  5. Yes! Your Bruce comment made me giggle! That is so awesome. The part where you say you have talked about it more than him made me smile. Love it and loved all of your answers! Have a nice week!

Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
